Long Hiatus

Yes, it has been a long time since posting anything new here, but believe me, we have been quite busy around here.

To give you a vague idea of what I have been doing the past 24 hours, here is a condensed list.

*Lay comatose in bed while Nick decides it is a good idea to wake up and crawl all over my body at 5 A.M.
*Finally get up around 6:30 with Nick and turn on Chicka Chicka Boom Boom for him to watch on DVD while I lay comatose on couch.
*Get kids fed, dressed, and out the door to ballet class for Katie.
*Get to ballet class (of course 30 minutes away) and realize that Katie has forgotten her ballet bag with tap and ballet shoes.
* Hop back in car and call Daddy for lunch since we are already out and about, forget ballet.
*Take kids home for nap and call Houston friends for information about chimney workers.
* Call approximately 6 chimney places trying to get an estimate on caulking and sealing a chimney. No one willing to give information without seeing property and charging fee.
*Call realtor in Houston back to discuss closing on house.
*Call air conditioning company to report not receiving receipt for work done that is needed for closing.
*Call realtor office to get fax number and tell them they should receive fax of work done soon.
*Call air conditioning company back to give fax number for realtor.
*Call trash service to verify that they have us in their system (after I called a week ago) since they were kind enough to leave us a paper telling us to call to set up new service. Find out paper was left by mistake, but call worthwhile since they messed up the recycling service information.
*Talk to GE serviceman who is delivering new refrigerator tomorrow between 1 and 5.
*Go to new house to drop off a few things and clean up from painting so that movers will be able to maneuver around the house tomorrow.

It is now going on 2:00 P.M. here and I still have to call more chimney people, call the movers to make sure they are coming tomorrow morning, go back to the house to finish getting a few things done, call U-Haul to rent a truck, and change our address at a zillion companies one more time, all while listening to beloved daughter scream off and on because there is a fly in the apartment. (Sigh)....
